Testing Waters: FS 70 510 2dr

Recommended Posts

As it states I'm merely testing the waters to see what possible trade options are available to me...I am in no rush at all to sell or trade this car so again this is testing the water...

 

Car is located in socal

 

This is my 1970 510. It's been a great car and runs very well. Car has been takin care of for the most part but could use some work here n there. This car was in a good friend of mines family for over 20 years. It currently still holds a clean title. The body was in overall decent shape up until a few weeks ago a lady hit the car as she was leaving her parking spot right next to mine. Sounds hard to believe I know but the pics will explain it all. Car was borderline salvaged but I fought tooth and nail w the insurance adjusters to hold the clean title givin the circumstance of the incident. See pics below after reading through the post......

 

Specs on the car

~no headliner atm but I have all the crossbows to have one made

~OG solex door n trunk locks

~Battery relocated to custom batt tray in the trunk

~ car was repainted about 3 years ago. It looked good when it was done but there r cracks in some areas at this time. Still shines when washed though.

~all glass in great shape

~working windshield wipers

 

 

Rear floor pans were replaced, has quarter size rust hole on the driver floorpan.

 

Cons:

The rust hole, bare interior for the most part, blinker switch has a short, valves could use a little adjusting,passenger window slowly falls while driving over bumps since the accident.

 

I'm sure there's plenty more I'm forgetting but oh well. It's a great car n has been my daily driver for some time now. trades I'm considering would be as followed...

 

Clean ae86 hatch(this would be numbe 1), clean s13 or s14's w minor mods not looking for shitty missiles or beat up piles etc....no fwd and no 2 seaters plz....

Lol cus she had some low budget full coverage insurance. They valued the car at $1100 and the damage over $500 worth n called it a total loss n wanted to send me a $400 check. I fought w them n brought up small claims court n they decided the car wasn't a total loss n gave me a few pennies, a nickel n silver dollar n let me keep the title. N no she was juggling cigs n a 6pk of wine coolers wich I'm most certain was not her first of the nite

So, is it for sale? Rant thread? Or just show-n-tell? I'm not sure I understand the point of a "testing the waters" ad.

So sue her in small claims court for the difference, When she can't or won't pay, have the marshall seize her car, auction it off and get your car professionally restored.

ro510~

Sweet man well I'm not sure who he was I had a lot of interest today since posting.

 

As to everyone else lol. The car is for sale for the right price basically. My asking price is definitely not set in stone but if there is nothing but lowballers trying to weezle their way into a 510 ill have no problem keeping her. If it came to a trade it would be something as I posted but as it sits now more into selling outright as I have my eyes set on a few other projects.. thanks guys

Had a potential buyer just leave. I'm a bit scared. Within the first 2 min I was asked if the l18 is a single cam motor and tgen a friend asked y does it idle the way it does y don't I fix it, I explained that's what happens when an engine has a bigger than stock cam, I was then told,"yea its hard to change the idle n adjust the timing that way", I was very confused and a bit mind blown, but the one for 1000 more n a ka swap will ptolly be his final choice Lmao
